    Very typical Southern Euro look.

    And since he commented about the Italian diaspora in Argentina and Mexico, well, he could easily pass as white guy from these countries, because most Euro looking Latinos look Iberian/Southern European.

    I think his parents were Anthony Amendola and Maria Pace.

    If so, his paternal grandparents were Frank/Francesco Amendola and Anna Cimino, and his maternal grandparents were Frank Pace and Marie Cavalier.

    “The surname Amendola is usually Italian.”

    Cut “usually” because it’s an Italian surname.
